The meaning of Historic personage in dream | Dream interpretation


These dreams may be hidden messages and experiences that are influenced by the culture in which the person lived.

According to Freud, the personage is almost always the symbol for a father or mother. According to Jung, if the name of such a person is mentioned in your dream, you should find out about that person—who he was, who was around during his time, and what he did.

HISTORIC

In some dreams we find ourselves in the past, with the feeling of those times. This nearly always depicts, not a past life, but our own feelings. So a cowboy scene might de­pict our pioneering spirit or sense of adventure. We need to define what feelings we derive from reading about or seeing films about such periods of history. Also our past; the person we were at some period in our life. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

HISTORIC

1- To have a dream which is set in history such as in the Elizabethan or Victorian times is to link with our past feelings and with that part of ourselves which has passed into history. It links with the person we were at some previous time in our lives and perhaps links with outdated beliefs and ways of liv ing.

2- The human being continually assesses both their, and the historic, past. History is perhaps an objective assessment of a subjective way of being. Sometimes to dream in this way is to dream of the person we might have been.

3- Old beliefs and life patterns need to be considered in the light of present knowledge.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

HISTORICAL FIGURES

Historical figures typically represent the kind of person you would like to be or could be, as people in dreams often represent aspects of yourself of which you may be unaware. The historical figure you dream about can come from any time period; you need to look for character traits and attributes, experiences and achievements either good or bad that have meaning and relevance to you.

If you dream of Tutankhamen, for example, the beautiful golden face of this young pharaoh may suggest the delights of youth and early promise; on the other hand, that the body is embalmed for all eternity may suggest that you are denied the right to express yourself. The association with ‘mummy’ suggests that your parents might not be allowing you the freedom you need.

If you dream of Julius Caesar—someone famous for being brutally betrayed and assassinated by his followers—this image may suggest that your hostility towards someone, however justified, is a betrayal. Caesar also warns against alienating others through ambition and pride.

If you dream of Nero, the Roman emperor, it could be that you are worried by your own, or someone else’s, life of debauchery and random, cruel decisions. To dream of Cleopatra is a stark warning of the dangers of balancing love with ambition and power; she famously combined sex appeal, political cunning, beauty and ambition to influence her Roman lovers, Caesar and Mark Anthony. The warning in the dream comes from the fact that she ultimately died from a self-inflicted serpent bite.

For Jungians, ‘good queen Bess’ or Queen Elizabeth I may evoke the archetypal image of the great mother, combining earthly power with spiritual exaltation. Also significant is the fact that Elizabeth, as the Virgin Queen, renounced her sexuality for her country. George Washington was a brave soldier and honest leader, and presents an image of the archetypal father figure. Freudians might perhaps see his felling of the infamous cherry tree, because ‘he could never tell a lie’, as an acknowledgement of repressed sexuality. The famous French leader Napoleon was a liberator yet also a tyrant, and in dreams may be the symbol of a dictator or overbearing father figure. As a role model of justice with wisdom and compassion, Abraham Lincoln may evoke the wise old man archetype with its ability to impart knowledge and inspire; his assassination, which he predicted in a dream, adds elements of sacrifice and intuition to his symbolism. The head of the Catholic Church, the Pope, may also represent the archetypal wise old man.

As the ultimate villain of the twentieth century, Adolf Hitler reminds you that dark urges are not fictional characteristics but very much alive in human nature. Jungians would see in him and other brutal dictators, such as Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung or Pol Pot, the archetypal shadow figure. Winston Churchill, by contrast, is a shining example of the triumph of wisdom, experience and indomitable will, as his greatest glory only came when many thought his career was over. A symbol of strength and persistence, he is also an ideal father figure: tough and gruff, but also fair, courageous and protective. The dream image of John F. Kennedy is a symbol of the archetypal free-spirited hero, but he may also indicate voracious sexual appetites.

The appearance of Carl Jung in your dreams may be reassuring you if you share his view that dreams are a powerful way to gather new insights on the path to spiritual self-fulfillment.

If Freud appears in your dreams, he may represent the image of the psychoanalyst listening to your anxieties. You may speak to your dream analyst about things you keep from others—and even yourself—in waking life. For dreams such as being present at a famous event in world history, such as the Battle of Waterloo or the first moon landing, see TIME.... The Element Encyclopedia

HISTORICAL PEOPLE AND EVENTS

Some people have dreams in which they appear at a particular past event of national or world historical importance, such as Waterloo, World War II or walking on the moon. They may also come face to face with a famous historical figure, such as Queen Victoria or Abraham Lincoln. These dreams are often a reflection of your interest in a particular time period or particular character in history, but they may also have a deeper significance. For example, if you find yourself in the middle of a World War, perhaps this relates to personal conflict in your life; a historical figure may be a symbol of someone close to you....

PREHISTORIC

Our own primeval urges and drives, such as fear, territorial aggression, mating rituals, survival—many of these urges have not been transformed. Many of our social rituals, such as the father giving the daughter in marriage— possibly out of the need to allay aggression between males, and break the father’s sexual bond with the daughter—arose from these basic drives. Also our babyhood or prenatal life. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
